Summer Series 2019

Old Stables – Sunday 17th March 2019

Mark Harmer wins at first summer match at Old Stables – Didn’t he do that last year?!

So here we go again. The Stalham AC summer series. Round 1 was at The Old Stables, North Walsham. 13 hopefuls turn out for the opening match. Reports from the match on Wednesday were not good so expectations were a little low. With quite strong wind and a few showers forecast it was time to see who would pull the winning number out of the bag. Mark Harmer drew peg 7 out, and caught small carp and roach for the first half, but then he decided to have a look under the willow tree which has been void of fish all winter. But to his surprise they were there and he caught steadily till the end to finish in first place with 42lb 8oz. 2nd place goes to Tony Wilkinson from peg 12. Tony caught 21lb 12oz which was good considering he had the strong wind blowing straight in his face. Well done Tony. Mark Charlwood and Dave Paynter were joint 3rd. Both weighing 18lb 8oz. Overall it fished well, considering the conditions, and it was much better than last year. Hopefully next week the conditions will be much better- we will see.
